The Option in Recording Arts provides a curriculum for students who wish to seek employment in fields combining music and technology.
A music major in the Recording Arts Option will take
courses in composition with electronic media, audio
recording, and basic electronics with electives in audio
for video and the music industry. Completion of a B.A. in
this program will offer to a music major enhanced
employment opportunities in technical areas; i.e., in the
recording industry (recording engineer, director, producer,
editor, music coordinator, etc.) and in music synthesis
(electronic musical instruments-composition, performance,
teaching, retail sales, etc.).
Employment opportunities can be further improved by pairing
the Option in Recording Arts with a minor in an area such
as business, telecommunications, engineering, computer
science, or electronics. The B.A. with an Option in
Recording Arts is also preparation for a Master's degree
for those wishing to continue their education.
